"Since I was a kid, I have always been interested in medicine and sports. Then during my adolescent years, I learned how I could turn my two favorite things into a career: Sports Medicine.

I can't recommend Jeanette enough. She is our absolute favorite. She started treating my son for a severely broken ankle in September of 2015. Then in May of 2016 when he was having issues she immediately sensed something was wrong and ordered the proper testing. I truly believe if it hadn't been for her thoroughness and determination my sons story would not be a good one. It was her intuition and knowledge to know something wasn't right. The testing that she ordered gave us a diagnosis of Osteogenic Sarcoma (bone cancer). While as devastating as the news was the good thing is it was caught early! We love Jeanette and owe her more than we can ever repay her!
